About this Item

Stapled, printed wraps, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, 70 pp., 33 plates (b/w drawings). Errata slip. Very good. Scarce. From the preface: "Mr. Aiken and Mr. Fuller, the authors of this compact and informative booklet have, for the first time, illustrated and described under one cover all of the living species in the molluscan family Volutidae, found in African waters. Heretofore, anyone interested in the volutid fauna from this area would have found it difficult to obtain the many esoteric references needed to complete his study. In 'The Living Volutes of Africa' the reader will find a valuable map showing the geographical location of 31 species. Also included is an up-to-date systematic arrangement of these species under their proper genera, as determined from the latest available date. Under each species, the authors illustrate and describe the shell, giving the distribution, habitat, and in many cases the best known synonyms. Drawings of the radula teeth of several species are included as well as a bibliography of the principal references. As one who has been interested in this fascinating family of molluscs for many years, I recommend this little booklet to amateurs and professionals alike. It is a handy guide to the Volutes of Africa and the adjacent islands off the African continent." (Clifton S. Weaver, Hawaiian Malacological Society). (3214006). Bookseller Inventory # 1543
